To be held at Durham University Business School, Durham, England, UK
Following the success of the 20th Symposium of the International Corporate Identity Group (ICIG) held in Slovenia in June 2018 the dates - and venue - for the 21st Symposium can now be confirmed (see above). Jointly hosted by Professor John MT Balmer (ICIG Founder & Chairman; Brunel University, London, England, UK) and Dr Xinming He (Durham University, England, UK), the symposium will be held at the triple-accredited Durham University Business School which is a constituent part of the University of Durham: England’s third oldest University. The University has a sterling international reputation for its research, scholarship, and teaching and, as with Oxford and Cambridge, is a collegiate University (all students need to be affiliated to one of the University’s colleges). Durham City is a quintessential English cathedral city. Notably, the beautiful Romanesque Cathedral - dating back to 1080 - along with Norman Durham Castle (now University College, Durham) are now a UNSECO world heritage site.
As with previous symposia, interested participants will be asked to submit working/full-papers/full abstracts for review. Dates for submission will follow. Papers should have a clear focus on one of the following corporate-level constructs including, corporate identity, corporate brands, corporate image/reputation, corporate marketing, corporate communication. Empirical and conceptual papers are welcome. We do not privilege any particular research tradition so quantitative, qualitative, case studies are welcome. Following the distinctive ICIG tradition we welcome papers from senior academics, other academics and especially welcome new scholars to the field including PhD students. It is envisaged that a special edition of a journal/other publication will be associated with the symposium.
SYMPOSIUM FEE: To be announced in due course when the full call for papers is announced.
